Only the oldies would know when VHS players became more affordable for the public. Thinking about it, though, I suppose that it wouldn't make sense to sell music videos on tape, considering the recording capacity of a VHS tape, but still. I always wondered if there was ever a niche for that, like with singles in music.

 I wondered this too haha. I thought, maybe if they had the facilities they recorded them on the VHS from MTV or wherever?

VHS in a store or on TV were the only ways I knew of....

Okay, Old-Timers. I've had this question knocking around the back of my head for some time now.

Alright. Say it's the late 80s, early 90s. One of your favorite bands releases a music video. You catch it on MTV and really enjoy it. Was there ever a way of procuring an official copy (or...I guess....tape) of that video without recording it on a VHS player?

Yeah, dumb question, but always wondered.

R.I.P. Sir Christopher. Anyone who didn't know his work misses some massive films. I'll miss him.

The world is, again, a sadder place. Live long and prosper in the afterworld, Mr. Nimoy.

Coins and their metal (to bring back this old topic), one clear exception: the Kennedy 1/2 dollar.

It is an unsung hero as it had a greater percentage of silver in the mix. The '64s for sure (something like 90% silver). After, they still had 40% or something of the sort. Heck, makes 'em worth $1.50 USD!!
(for the record, I think my comic book collection is going at about the same rate). Hmmm...let's see what my 8 copies of Spawn #1 are selling for nowadays.

Yup, and in North America, this sort of "spirit duplicator" was known as a Ditto Machine! Ditto paper and the machine used to make the copies coexisted with the mimeograph but was invented later. It was the immediate precursor to the photocopy machine! The buzz came from the mineral spirits that were used to make the copies.

it was solvent based, the process to ink the papers. probably something like acetone or rubbing alcohol ,like a quick huff on an old fashioned glue bottle ,
